Long Absence

So, I didn’t create this blog to just sit here, but I am afraid it is not one of my priorities (obviously).   I wish I was more sure of what to do with this blog, though.  I thought about doing several things on here, including food and beverage reviews, personal blog, or strictly religious.  Not that I have any followers anyways, so I suppose it really wouldn’t matter what I do.  I suppose I should just leave it as undecided and post a simple mishmash of whatever the hell I want.  Or maybe not.  Meh...

Bombs away!!!

Recently, in Jacksonville, and islamic community center was bombed.  This is nuts.  Insane.  Which leads me to believe it was someone that was of another religion.  Say… christianity, perhaps.  The loon(s) responsible needs to be apprehended and prosecuted.

I am absolutely appalled that someone thinks this is ok.  Protest peacefully, if you feel the need.  But do NOT firebomb any religion’s place of worship.  This is a hate crime of epically insane proportions.  I hope no atheists would do this.  I know I don’t like the Islamic religion.  I don’t like Christianity, either.  But I certainly wouldn’t bomb or set fire to any churches.

The Poop...

I mean the Pope.  Pope Palpatine. No, Pope Nazi  Ratzi. Anyways, a lovely pic of that wingnut who thinks he is god’s right hand or something.



I can’t decide which one is more scary…

Hat tip to Eric and Phil.

Boobquake has officially begun.

For those of you not familiar with the story, you can find it here.  A fellow atheist blogger from Indiana, Jen McCreight has gained international media attention for her single blogpost in reply to some superstitious religious nut offering his explanation for earthquakes. 

She really is quite brilliant and I will be following this event and take notes of any seismic activity.

Too bad I don’t like boobs.

Home again

So, I am back home in Indianapolis from my little trip to Richmond.

And this is what I come back to.

John McCain being an ignorant old bastard.  How surprising.

Here’s the deal.  Arizona just passed a stupid immigration law which essentially allows requires a police officer to engage in racial profiling.  It is another case of prejudice being written into laws here in the USA, essentially.  NOT OK.  But the wonderful and wise Sen. McCain disagrees.  Why?  Because the illegal immigrants are intentionally causing accidents on the freeway. 

WOW.  I am sure that’s documented fact, though.  And I am sure that he knew exactly what he was talking about.

Oh look, a pig just flew by.

Small Travels

I am now soaking up some rays in Richmond, IN.  Odd place for someone like me to be, considering it is a small, conservative, mostly ignorant sort of town.  Except they have quite a gay community.  Interestingly, the majority of the inhabitants that I have met seem to be non-judgemental (at least outwardly).  Admittedly, I haven’t met many people, either.  I have certainly seen some interesting signs, linking President Obama to socialism and a lot of other ignorant tripe.  More on that later, when I have pictures to prove it.

There is one place in this town that I absolutely adore.  A pet shop called Critters, where two friends of mine, Sebastian and Aaron, work.  They have many birds here with all sorts of personalities and sizes.  From quakers to maccaws, from sweet to “Don’t even look at me.”  Which brings me to the story of my interactions with one of these certain birds named Polly (cliche, I know).

Polly is an amazon, and hates me.  So there I am, with my back to this bird while she is out of her cage, petting another of the birds, when she starts slowly inching toward me.  Now I am paying attention to this, because I like my flesh right where it is.  She leans toward me slowly, and I look at her and she backs off a bit.  But only for a moment.  This is the fake out.  Back off and look at him until he turns his head again.

So this continues slowly for a few minutes, with me trying constantly to keep my eye on her while trying to pay attention to another bird.  Every time I catch her with her mouth just inches from my arm, she says something and backs off.  The problem here is that I am bad at multi-tasking and I am already afraid of this bird.  So then I feel something touch my shirt, and I jump around and say “No!”  To which Polly replies, “I’ll whoop your ass!”

Speechlessness.  Fear.  Oh snap.

I just tucked my tail and walked away.
